The Maine Lighthouse Museum relies heavily on volunteers that help out in different capacities throughout the year. Please call or visit the museum to learn about the variety of fun and interesting opportunities offered. If you have one day a week, or even one day a month, we would love to speak with you about how you can help become an integral part of this very special museum. No prior experience or knowledge of lighthouses is necessary. We are simply looking for people who are excited to learn, to teach, and to help "keep the lights burning" at one of Rockland's greatest cultural treasures.


Maine has a proud tradition of neighbor helping neighbor, and today this volunteer spirit is needed more than ever before. "We are so grateful for the volunteers that have returned to us each year, and we are hoping to expand that foundation." said Dot Black, Interim Museum Director at the Maine Lighthouse Museum. "It is hugely rewarding to share the rich and important heritage of these icons. I am so thrilled to hear visitors exclaiming, at the end of their museum tour, that they had no idea how much they really loved lighthouses. The visitors often attribute much of their newfound enthusiasm to the volunteers they speak with."
